Untuk pertanyaan Part A, Anda harus:

1. Membaca semua kalimat, dan mencoba memasukkan pilihan jawaban yang

tersedia. Misal masukkan terlebih dahulu pilihan jawaban A.
2. Jika jawaban A tidak benar, cobalah untuk memikirkan kenapa tidak benar.
3. Jika Anda sudah mengetahui kenapa jawaban A salah maka silahkan lanjut ke
pilihan B, C, dan D.
4. Jika masih saja tidak yakin, cobalah untuk mengingat rumus dari kalimat tersebut.
5. Jika Anda tidak bisa mendapatkan jawaban yang paling benar, eliminasilah
terlebih dahulu jawaban-jawaban yang jelas salah dan cobalah untuk menebak.
During the Daytona 500, the lead car ___________, leaving the others far behind.
A. forwarded rapidly
B. advanced rapidly
C. advanced forward rapidly
D. advanced in a rapidly manner
Analisa soal: Hal yang pertama Anda lakukan yaitu mencoba memasukkan jawaban
A pada soal. Anda dapat mengetahui bahwa jawaban A salah karena kalimat soal
membutuhkan kata kerja sementara jawaban A tidak memiliki kata kerja. Jika Anda
yakin bahwa kata kerja advanced pada jawaban B sudah sesuai untuk mengisi
kalimat di atas maka Anda tidak perlu lagi ke pilihan C dan D. Tapi jika anda kurang
yakin AndaBOLEH lanjut ke pilhan C. Anda melihat bahwa jawaban C berlebihlebihan karena terdapat dua kata yang mepunyai makna sama. Advance telah
bermakna move forward (maju). Sementara jawaban D kata rapidly (adverb)
sebelum manner (noun) harusnya rapid (adjective) untuk membentuk
suatu phrase (gabungan kata) yang benar. Ingat rumus (Adjective + Noun) bukan
(Adverb + Noun).

Pendekatan apa yang harus Anda gunakan untuk menjawab soal

Part B - Written Expression?
- Lagi, ingatlah bahwa Anda sedang mencari penulisan bahasa Inggris yang benar.
- Ingatlah bahwa Anda sedang mencari kata atau frasa (gabungan kata) yang salah,
yang mesti diubah agar kalimat menjadi benar.

Untuk pertanyaan Part B, Anda harus:

1. Membaca seluruh kalimat soal.
2. Jika Anda tidak menemukan jawaban yang salah dengan cepat. Maka ingatlah
rumus-rumus yang Anda telah pelajari dan pastikanlah pilihan-pilihan jawaban yang
Contoh Soal I:
In the united states, there are much holidays throughout the year.
Analisa jawaban: Ketika Anda membaca kalimat secara keseluruhan Anda dapat
mengetahui dengan cepat bahwa much tidak sesuai dengan kata holidays. Much
menandakan uncountable noun (benda tak bisa dihitung) sementara holidays
dengan jelas merupakan kata benda yang bisa dihitung (countable noun).

Contoh Soal II:

Tomatoes grows all year long in Florida
Analisa jawaban: Jika Anda menjawab dengan terburu-buru, hanya dengan melihat
pilihan jawaban Anda bisa sja terkecoh dan memilih jawaban A dengan asumsi
bahwa tomatoes (plural/jamak) harusnya tomato (singular/tunggal) karena kata
kerja grows berbentuk tunggal. Tapi jika Anda membaca seluruh kalimat Anda akan
mendapati bahwa konteks kalimat tidak mendiskusikan tentang satu tomat. Olehnya
jawaban yang Anda pilih yaitu jawaban B. Grows seharusnya grow.

Questions 20-30

The locations of stars in the sky relative to one another do not appear to the naked
eye to change, and as a result stars are often considered to be fixed in position.
Many unaware stargazers falsely assume that each star has its own permanent home
in the nighttime sky.

In reality, though, stars are always moving, but because of the tremendous distances
between stars themselves and from stars to Earth, the changes are barely
perceptible here. An example of a rather fast-moving star demonstrates why this
misconception prevails; it takes approximately 200 years for a relatively rapid star
like Bernard's star to move a distance in the skies equal to the diameter of the
earth's moon. When the apparently negligible movement of the stars is contrasted
with the movement of the planets, the stars are seemingly unmoving.

a. barely perceptible
b. huge
c. fixed
d. moderate

23. The word "perceptible" in line 5 is closest in meaning to which of the following?
a. noticeable
b. persuasive
c. conceivable
d. astonishing

24. In line 6, a "misconception" is closest in meaning to a (n)

a. idea
b. proven fact
c. erroneous belief
d. theory

a. around Earth's moon

a. are fixed in the sky

Questions 31-40

It has been noted that, traditionally, courts have granted divorces on fault grounds:
one spouse is deemed to be at fault in causing the divorce. More and more today,
however, divorces are being granted on a no-fault basis.

Proponents of no-fault divorces argue that when a marriage fails, it is rarely the case
that one marriage partner is completely to blame and the other blameless. A failed
marriage is much more often the result of mistakes by both partners.

Another argument in favor of no-fault divorce is that proving fault in court, in a public
arena, is a destructive process that only serves to lengthen the divorce process and
that dramatically increases the negative feelings present in a divorce. If a couple can
reach a decision to divorce without first deciding which partner is to blame, the
divorce settlement can be negotiated more easily and equitably and the postdivorce
healing process can begin more rapidly.

a. Traditional grounds for divorce
b. Who is at fault in a divorce
c. Why no-fault divorces are becoming more common

d. The various reasons for divorces

a. there recently has been a decrease in no-fault divorces
b. not all divorces today are no-fault divorces
c. a no-fault divorce is not as equitable as a fault divorce

d. people recover more slowly from a no-fault divorce

35. The word "proponents" in line 4 is closest in meaning to which of the following?
a. Advocates
b. Recipients
c. Authorities
d. Enemies

36. The passage states that a public trial to prove the fault of one spouse can
a. be satisfying to the wronged spouse
b. lead to a shorter divorce process
c. reduce negative feelings
d. be a harmful process

37. Which of the following is NOT listed in this passage as an argument in favor of
no-fault divorce?
a. Rarely is only one marriage partner to blame for a divorce
b. A no-fault divorce generally costs less in legal fees

c. introducing
d. resulting

a. emotional
b. enthusiastic

Questions 41-50

Whereas literature in the first half of the eighteenth century in America had been
largely religious and moral in tone, by the latter half of the century the revolutionary
fervor that was coming to life in the colonies began to be reflected in the literature of
the time, which in turn served to further influence the population. Although not all
writers of this period supported the Revolution, the two best-known and most
influential writers, Ben Franklin and Thomas Paine, were both strongly supportive of
that cause.

Ben Franklin first attained popular success through his writings in his brother's
newspaper, the New England Current. In these articles he used a simple style of
language and common sense argumentation to defend the point of view of the
farmer and the Leather Apron man. He continued with the same common sense
practicality and appeal to the common man with his work on Poor Richard's Almanac
from 1733 until 1758. Firmly established in his popular acceptance by the people,
Franklin wrote a variety of extremely effective articles and pamphlets about the
colonist's revolutionary cause against England.

Thomas Paine was an Englishman working as a magazine editor in Philadelphia at

the time of the Revolution. His pamphlet Common Sense, which appeared in 1776,

was a force in encouraging the colonists to declare their independence from England.
Then throughout the long and desperate war years he published a series of Crisis
papers (from 1776 until 1783) to encourage the colonists to continue on with the
struggle. The effectiveness of his writing was probably due to his emotional yet
oversimplified depiction of the cause of the colonists against England as a classic
struggle of good and evil.

41. The paragraph preceding this passage most likely discusses

a. how literature influence the population
b. religious and moral literature
c. literature supporting the cause of the American Revolution
d. what made Thomas Paine's literature successful

42. The word "fervor" in line 2 is closest in meaning to

a. war
b. anxiety
c. spirit
d. action

43. The word "time" in line 3 could best be replaced by

a. hour
b. period
c. appointment
d. duration

44. It is implied in the passage that

a. some writers in the American colonies supported England during the Revolution
b. Franklin and Paine were the only writers to influence the Revolution
c. because Thomas Paine was an Englishman, he supported England against the
d. authors who supported England did not remain in the colonies during the

45. The pronoun "he" in line 8 refers to

a. Thomas Paine
b. Ben Franklin
c. Ben Franklin's brother
d. Poor Richard

46. The expression "point of view" in line 9 could best be replaced by

a. perspective
b. sight
c. circumstance
d. trait

47. According to the passage, the tone of Poor Richard's Almanac is

a. pragmatic
b. erudite
c. theoretical
d. scholarly

48. The word "desperate" in line 16 could best be replaced by
